When I was in high school I turned thick books into flip books. When I got bored with the subject (it was Trigonometry) I drew, I doodled, so I was able to create enjoyable animations: a football player kicking the ball; a canon firing a projectile; a running man; a running horse. Those were the things that I animate on the pages of thick books. I did not know that it was called flip book, all I knew was that it made me happy. My flip book animations were quite good but they pale in comparison to what I came upon a while ago. I found the video above while searching for something else on Youtube. What is shown in the video is flip book creation to the highest level. How I wish I have the time to spare so I could try making something like this.
